What’s The Deal?
If you like progressive jackpots and gemstone-themed slots then you’ll be pleased to hear that Skywind (the people behind the Bonus Digger slot in case you didn’t know) has released a game just for you. You lucky things!
It’s called the Super Lion slot and has a spaced-out vibe, with wild re-spins and a progressive jackpot. Plus a lion with a multi-coloured mane of course. We have lift-off!
Super Lion Stats
Super Lion is a five-reel and three-row online slot machine from Skywind. Ten pay lines pay left to right and right to left (so twenty effectively), and the maximum win is 993x your stake.
This is a low-volatility slot that launched in August 2019. The main features include Expanding wilds (triggering re-spins, Respins, Sticky Wilds and Wilds.
Graphics and Theme
The gameplay is out of this world Wombat Fans – quite literally – as the reels spin on a purple-hued galaxy background. Quite a bit different from their other games, like the CSI slot for instance, which is a bit more conservative.
The Skywind designers have most certainly been inspired by Starburst here; from the gem-filled reels to the space-age backdrop – but that doesn’t stop this game from being very easy on the eye. There are also lions in this game, let’s be fair.
We are big fans of that cool, colourful crystal lion fella! Lions are lucky in Chinese culture (I only mention that because I have just been spinning the Ingots of Cai Shen slot).
I should think multi-coloured crystal lions are even more so.
Your space age reel symbols are the lucky seven, a turquoise omega symbol and gem stars or planets in yellow, green, pink, blue and red.
The multi coloured crystal lion icon is the wild symbol and will substitute for all symbols on the reels.
The omega icon is the most lucrative icon on the pay table. Land five of these sparklers and you will get a payout of 300x your bet.
The Super Lion slot has five reels, three rows and ten pay lines, which lines it up alongside games like the Big Money Frenzy slot from Blueprint Gaming and others.
You can make wins both from right to left and from left to right – which doubles the pay lines to twenty. That’s another similarity to Starburst by the way.
Super Lion Slot Bonuses
You’ve probably noticed there are no scatter symbols in play here.
That’s because there are no free spins round. Instead, you have two awesome bonuses:
If the wild lion lands on reels 2, 3 & 4, he will expand to cover the whole reel and become sticky for one re-spin. Any more wilds that hit will now also become sticky and another Re-spin is awarded.
The Super Lion slot also comes with a jackpot element. To set it off, you’ll need to land the yellow, green, purple, blue and red gem icons on any pay line all at the same time.
Manage this and the progressive jackpot amount shown above the reels will be yours!
The Super Lion slot looks great. The spin soundtrack is soothing and the Starburst-style play will keep you spinning.
And there’s always the chance that you’ll pick up the progressive jackpot!
Wombat score: 4/5

What is the Key Feature in Super Lion?
That would be the Expanding Wild symbol: the neon lion of the title. This Expanding Wild symbol only appears on the middle three reels, but it when it lands, it will expand to cover the entire reel and trigger the Wild Respin feature. If you land another Lion during the respin, you’ll get another respin with both Expanding Wilds expanded and locked.
